MINISTRIES & MISSIONS

 
 
Your Outreach Committee identifies a Ministry to focus on each month. They provide information through the web, newsletter and bulletins about how you can participate. To donate, please place your contribution (make your check out to Anoka UMC) in an envelope found in the pews, or in your offering envelope, and mark it with the name of this month’s ministry. 
 
United methodist Committee on Relief

United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR) is a ministry of The United Methodist Church through the General Board of Global Ministries, and their goal is to assist the most vulnerable persons affected by crisis or chronic need without regard to their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. UMCOR believes all people have God-given worth and dignity.

UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the United States. They provide humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupt life to such an extent that communities are unable to recover on their own.

While UMCOR cooperates with other aid organizations to extend our reach, our most important partners are the people we serve. We are confident that successful solutions to emergency or chronic conditions begin with the affected population. UMCOR provides these survivors not only temporary relief but long-term education, training, and support.

UMCOR spends 100 percent of designated donations on the projects our donors specify. When you as UMCOR donors give their time, money, and supplies, they join UMCOR as the hands and feet of Christ.
